Oxidative stress is considered to be an important pathophysiological condition to promote cell death in a broad variety of disorders, such as cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Scavestrogens, structurally derived from estradiol, are potent radical scavengers and inhibitors of iron-induced cell damage in vitro. In this study the potential(More)
Antioxidant effects of delta 8,9-dehydro derivatives of 17 alpha-estradiol and 17 beta-estradiol were investigated using four different in vitro models: rat synaptosomal lipid peroxidation induced by Fenton's reagent, Fe(II)-chelating activities, the formation of superoxide anion radicals, and total antioxidative activities. The parent molecules, 17(More)
Antioxidant effects of N,N-dimethyl-p-toluidine, p-cresol, and p-(hydroxy)thioanisol 17 alpha-substituted analogs of 17 beta-estradiol and their delta 9(11)-dehydro homologs were investigated using four different in vitro models: rat synaptosomal lipid peroxidation induced by Fenton's reagent, Fe(II)-chelating activities, the formation of superoxide anion(More)
